Last Saturday, we had a proud moment. We attended the Religious Recognition Mass for Scouting at the Basilica of St. Mary. First of all, my Star Scout received his Ad Altare Dei award. Second, my AHG Pioneer received her Mary, the First Disciple award. She was the first AHG member in our Archdiocese to receive this award AND the only girl at the ceremony. Here are some of the pictures.

The presider is one of my favorite priests. He encouraged the all the
participants to go out and continually challenge themselves, both in
Scouting and in their religious life. It was beautiful.
Mom and Dad (and their respective counselors) are very proud of them and the hard work they did to achieve the awards.
I'm Catholic. I'm married to an Eagle Scout who is a great leader, handsome and very patient. I homeschool and I bake both because we have lots of allergies here but mostly because it is my escape from the real world with the distinct advantage of a tangible outcome.
I have 6 great kids here on earth, and 4 up in Heaven. Join me on the road to becoming a scholar, better baker and my kids journey to becoming great leaders and Saints.
